THE STRONGEST CANDIDATES...:
Run Mitch, Run (DAVID BROOKS, 2/24/11, NY Times)
The man who would be the party’s strongest candidate for the presidency is seriously thinking about not running. The country could use a serious, competent manager, which Governor Daniels has been, and still he’s thinking about not running. The historic moment calls for someone who can restrain debt while still helping government efficiently perform its duties. Daniels has spent his whole career preparing for this kind of moment, and still he’s thinking about not running.
The country also needs a substantive debate about the role of government. That’s exactly what an Obama-Daniels contest would provide. Yet because Daniels is a normal person who doesn’t have an insatiable desire for higher office, he’s thinking about not running.
...would be Jeb, Christie and Jindal. But the strongest who might run is Mitch. Posted by Orrin Judd at February 25, 2011 7:29 AM
